Step 1: Use a Small Container That You Can Put in a Sunny Place
bigger containers will not work well while trying to grow the plant at first. The plant will eventually need to be transplanted depending on the starting container.
Step 2: Fill 3/4 of the Container With Soil
Step 3: Moisten the Soil
Step 4: Use 3-5 Basil Seeds
Step 5: Make Very Small Holes in Soil for the Seeds With a Toothpick
make sure the holes are not too deep.
Step 6: Place Seeds in Holes and Cover Lightly With Soil
Step 7: Place the Container in a Sunny and Warm Location
The plant doesn't need a lot of sunlight to grow but from my experience it will speed up the process by having a sunny location . Lightly water the plant every 1-2 days.
Step 8: This Is My Progress of a Little More Than 2 Weeks
